General Meeting

Speaker: Jackie Shay
Topic: 

Biodiversity and Phylogeny of Marasmius from

Madagascar (Published Results)”

Jackie Shay Biography:

Jackie Shay is a budding mycologist and systems biologist

currently pursuing her doctorate at the University of

California at Merced. Last May she graduated from San

Francisco State University with her master’s degree in Ecology,

Evolution, and Conservation Biology with Dr. Dennis

Desjardin. She focused her thesis on the wonderful diversity

and taxonomy of Marasmius from Madagascar. Her work

has recently been accepted for publication in Phytotaxa, a

first for Jackie in her academic career! She is excited to share

her findings with you this month.

Jackie is currently exploring the role fungi and bacteria

as they function in the microbiome of monkey flower

plants. In particular, she is curious how the microbiome influences

the host’s ability to evolve and adapt rapidly in a

changing climate. Jackie is dedicated to bringing awareness

to plant-fungal symbiosis.

Please come enjoy the beauty of decomposing fungi in

Madagascar and learn about the genus Marasmius in the final

chapter in this journey through evolution.
